Sorry for Sleeping...

What's up folks. Sorry we've been away for a while. If you're looking for show #105, we'll post it on Wednesday, along with #106 for a full two hours. Meanwhile - we also missed the 8th anniversary of a legend's death, as Big L passed away on 2-15-1999. Here are some tributes to him from XXL and HiphopDX, respectively.

Show #104 - Black History Month Celebration

As promised, we dropped our Black History Month celebratory show on Tuesday night, from midnight - 1am (I know, the new time and shorter show sucks - we feel you). It features some inspirational and relevant words from Martin, Huey, and Malcolm as well as classic tracks from Mos, Kweli, Lif, Akrobatik, Ghostface, Nas, and more (full playlist).

(Note: due to the unreliability of the wmfo website and their limited storage capacity, we'll now be offering our shows to download via zshare)

You may notice that this show includes much less rambling than previous shows. While this is good for listeners, it's not so good for us, as that rambling usually came in the last hour of the show when we were much more - ahem - inebriated, and therefore having more fun (To all WMFO exec boards who may be reading this post, 'inebriated' is being used strictly as a euphemism in this case and no drinking of alcoholic beverages takes place in WMFO studios during our show). On that note, let's all tip one out for the second hour of Long Crispies.

Usual Suspeckts Video

Any Long Crisp White Tee's fan worth their weight in empty 40 oz. bottles know that we love to big-up our boys Usual Suspeckts. For those of y'all who have been sleeping on the Boston hip-hop game, Usual Suspeckts in one of the hottest up and coming groups out in the Bean. Bobby O, Medesin Man, Nacious, and Shivaa have already brought it hard once with their instant classic, Usual Suspecktz Mixtape: Volume 1, and they're working hard to bring some new fire to the Boston scene. These dudes are constantly grinding in the studio with their beatsmith, Q, and always are good for a couple hot new tracks when they drop by the Crispy studios. They're currently putting the finishing touches on their latest street masterpiece, Under Investigation: Case File 1, which will be burning up the airways on LCWTs as soon as it gets dropped. In the meantime, enjoy this eagerly anticipated video for one of their sickest bangers so far, "Blood In My Eyes". Also, peep their MySpace Page for more pictures and videos. (The song "Never Fall Off" over the Living Legends' "Never Falling Down" beat is straight ridiculous). UUUUUUUUUUSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

Dirty South Grammy's

T.I., Chamillionaire, and Ludacris all won Grammy's on Sunday night. Somehow, none of them made it onto Long Crisp White Tee's Top 10 Albums of 2006. Go figure.

Lif Show in Northampton

The staff of LCWT's headed to Northampton on Saturday to catch Mr. Lif, who re-scheduled his tour after the horrific tour bus crash in December. As always, he put on a ridiculous show, from opening up with "Brothaz" to playing some old school favorites in "Home of the Brave," "Earthcrusher," and "Live From the Plantation." Lif was aided on stage by Willie Evans, Jr. and DJ Therapy (who also kicked a few verses) of the AB's (formerly Asamov). The video above is an acapella performance of "The Fries." At the end of the show, we got Lif and the AB's to record some drops for WMFO.

Again, make sure to tune in Tuesday, February 13th at midnight for the Long Crispies Black History Month Dedication Show.

LCWT's Late Night Edition

As you've undoubtedly heard, Long Crisp White Tee's was bumped out of its usual time slot and is now hitting the airwaves starting at 12am Tuesday nights. Last night was the first show in our new slot and we lasted until 2am, but for future shows we're going to have to run a truncated version, lasting from midnight - 1am.

New Time Slot

Unfortunately, due to the machinations of the wmfo scheduling process and station executive board inner-politics, your favorite radio show has been bumped out of its time slot. This Tuesday, February 6th, Long Crisp White Tee's will air from 12am - 2am. We are working on switching time slots but it does not look promising and we may be forced to run a truncated show for the spring and go from 12am - 1am. Tune in on Tuesday to find out more.

Nas and Juelz Santana

Here's the Juelz freestyle over the Black Republicans beat. I chopped off the Weezy verse and threw Nas' back on there. Much better.

Reef the Lost Cauze Concert and Nas tracks

The staff of Crispie's went down to Great Scott in Allston last night to catch some local acts and Philly's own Reef the Lost Cauze. The opening acts were decent, with the exception of the Dead Poets who got on stage and did something that didn't really resemble hip-hop to those in attendance. One of the early highlights was the performance by Relentless, who performed with Konundrum. Check for him on LCWT's in the near future. Amadeus the Stampede of the Greater Good put on a good set featuring some solo material off his upcoming album, then the rest of Greater Good, including Prone 2, Jake the Snake, and Benny B joined him on stage for some new tracks. "Holy Roller," produced by Amadeus himself, brought it pretty hard. Unfortunately, despite encouragement from the DDB, they declined to perform "The Hater Bounce" off of Jake the Snake's Strategy of a Crown. At the end of his set, Reef joined Amadeus on stage to do one last track together. While the crowd was fairly sparse throughout the evening, it got pretty crowded up by the stage once Lost Cauze started doing his thing. He worked the crowd and performed a bunch of his burners, including "Give it Up," "Sound of Philadelphia," and "This is My Life." Reef put on a great set, but he was much smaller than expected. He couldn't have been taller than 5'9". On another note, Sullee, of (ego trip's) White Rapper Show, showed up to mingle with the crowd and make good on his 15 minutes.

-Since they're on every other hip-hop related site, I figured we'd post the menagerie of Nas "Where Are They Now" remixes.

80's Remix ft. Ft. MC Shan, Raheem (Furious Five), Doctor Ice (UTFO), Kangol (UTFO), Kool Moe Dee, Sha Rock (Funky Four +1), Tito (Fearless Four), Grandmaster Caz (Cold Crush Brothers), Lique (Isis of X Clan), Dana Dane, Pebblee Poo & Just Ice.

90's Remix ft. Redhead Kingpin, The Original Spinderella, Rob Base, Father MC, Monie Love, Mike D (of the Jungle Brothers), EST (of 3XDope), Positive K, Das EFX, Lords of the Underground, Dres (of Black Sheep).

West Coast Remix ft. Breeze, Kam, King Tee, Candyman, Threat, Ice-T, Sir Mix-A-Lot and the Conscious Daughters (with scratches from DJ Bobcat).

While we're at it, here's the KRS-One tribute to Nas.

And this Joell Ortiz track is pretty dope.

Due to a scheduling mixup, we may be moving to a new time slot next week. Bear with us while we try to clear it up and check back here and the myspace for updates.
